Earlier today, Impact Wrestling announced on Twitter that Taya Valkyrie will not be at this Sunday's Bound for Glory PPV or the TV tapings that will take place in the days after. Impact did note they look forward to seeing her in 2018. Taya responded shortly after saying that she is "devastated," is out due to "personal reasons," but will be back in January and still wants to have the match against Rosemary.
I'll post a video this afternoon and chat w all of you. 2 say I'm disappointed is an understatement. I'm devastated, but I'll be back in Jan https://t.co/n8HCEueKHW— Lucha Royalty (@TheTayaValkyrie) November 4, 2017
And just to clarify to the "know it alls", I didn't "pull out" of BFG, I am un able to be there to whole week due to personal reasons— Lucha Royalty (@TheTayaValkyrie) November 4, 2017
According to PWInsider, the reason for the change was due to Valkyrie having trouble getting back into the U.S. after the tapings. Valkyrie was born in Canada, but permanent residency in the U.S. wasn't completed in time. Instead of taking the risk of Valkyrie not being able to come back to the country, Impact decided to pull the match. There's not said to be any heat on Taya and Impact plans on using her in their tapings that will take place in January.
While Impact has yet to announce what they plan to do with Rosemary at the PPV, Rosemary did comment on a future match, saying by January it will be "beyond bloodlust" and instead a "blood frenzy."
Wow no @TheTayaValkyrie at BFG, that sucks. That match was supposed to steal the show too.— MrDuttanized (@duttanized) November 4, 2017
